Introductory Glycobiology (330.712) 2014:

Classes will be held in Physiology 612 at 9-10.30am.

Note: Introduction for Glycobiology has finished for 2014. This course will be available again in March of 2017.

Each cell carries a rich and varied sugar coating – its “glycocalyx”. From microbial pathogenesis to axon regeneration, the cell’s sugar coating is intimately involved in cell-cell recognition. In addition, sugars constitute the extracellular matrix, regulate glycoprotein folding, distribution and function, and regulate intracellular proteins in a dynamic regulatory system akin to phosphorylation. Glycobiology, the discipline that explores the functions of sugars, is rapidly emerging as the next growth area in understanding molecular structure-function relationships beyond the genome and proteome. This course will introduce you to the discipline, its structural diversity, and its functional implications.
